1 Corinthians 15:45-56
45 The Scriptures tell us, “The first man, Adam, became a living person.” But the last Adam-that is, Christ-is a life-giving Spirit. 46 What came first was the natural body, then the spiritual body comes later. 47 Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven. 48 Every human being has an earthly body just like Adam’s, but our heavenly bodies will be just like Christ’s. 49 Just as we are now like Adam, the man of the earth, so we will someday be like Christ, the man from heaven. 50 What I am saying, dear brothers and sisters, is that flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. These perishable bodies of ours are not able to live forever. 51 But let me tell you a wonderful secret God has revealed to us. Not all of us will die, but we will all be transformed. 52 It will happen in a moment, in the blinking of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, the Christians who have died will be raised with transformed bodies. And then we who are living will be transformed so that we will never die. 53 For our perishable earthly bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die. 54 When this happens-when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die-then at last the Scriptures will come true: “Death is swallowed up in victory. 55 O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” 56 For sin is the sting that results in death, and the law gives sin its power. 57 How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord!

Our earthly bodies are just made of dust and will someday quit working for us.  Many already are suffering from bodies that are sick and broken.  This is just a temporary situation.  Even though it is all we know at this time, as a Christian, we need to understand this is just for this moment.  Someday we will have a body just like that of Jesus Christ after His resurrection.  As our earthly bodies grow weak and die, so our heavenly bodies will always be strong and never change.  We will be like Christ.  This scripture tells us that some will die, but some will be alive when the trumpet sounds and we will be transformed immediately into our heavenly bodies.  Our hope then is that whether we are alive on that day or we are already with Christ, we will all be transformed into the likeness of Him.  Life on earth is the patient waiting for the work of Jesus Christ to be completed in us.  We continue to live and work until He comes for those who believe Him. When millions of Christians disappear is not the end of this world.  But it is the end of grace and the beginning of judgment from God for a world that has rejected Jesus Christ. Those Christians who leave this world with Christ will return with Him after 7 years of judgment on this earth to rule with Him for 1000 years. Our bodies may suffer now, but our spirit and soul will carry on in Him in new heavenly bodies that will never die.  So, today, we can move forward until that day knowing that He is working His purpose in us.  Even if we are sick and suffering, we can have perfect peace that Christ will complete the good work He has started in us.  When your body is suffering, thank God for He has given you victory over sin and death.  And it is through His power that you carry on. It is through His power that keeps you strong, even though your body is dying.  You move forward in the peace of knowing that your God will transform your perishable body into a heavenly body that will never suffer or die.  This is your hope!

Have a God Day!
